Onigawara Iemori - Smile Demon Face

1. Product Description

What is onigawara iemori?

Onigawara ridge-end tiles have long been installed on the roofs of shrines, temples and Japanese homes as "guardian angels". But due to the prevailing use of Western-style roofing, on which onigawara tiles are difficult to install, we are witnessing a fading of this important facet of Japanese house culture, in which the onigawara ridge-end tile is equalted with a guardian angel. So we have developed onigawara iemori as interior products based on the concept of providing guardian angels in all living spaces, whether single- family homes, apartments, or offices. Both the diminutive size, which won't interfere with your interior design, and the walnut base, with its indentation for the placement of the onigawara iemori, make the product suitable to a variety of situations. Since the tiles are fixed to the base with screws, multiple pieces can be interchanged, and because our product allows for wall mounting
or surface display, you can exhibit it anywhere.

Your onigawara iemori will always watch over the healthy growth and development of your family, forever warding off evil, looking after the prosperity of future generations.

This is a handmade product and it is crafted one by one by the artisans. The expression of this "onigawara iemori" means "singnifying common sense....towards a new world view."
